1 Articulate Rise modules will only send a Completed or Passed/Failed verb if they are displayed via Lightbox or a new window and upon closing the lightbox/window. When adding Rise modules, you should avoid using iFrame as the display method. Alternatively, you can override Completion Condition on the lesson or topic edit page by specifying other verbs such as “attempted” or “experienced” to trigger the Mark Complete button.

2 iSpring modules whose completion is based on viewing of slides will only send a Passed verb if the module is displayed via Lightbox or a new window and upon closing the lightbox/window. When adding iSpring modules, you should avoid using iFrame as the display method. Alternatively, you can override Completion Condition on the lesson or topic edit page by specifying other verbs such as “attempted” or “experienced” to trigger the Mark Complete button.

    Now that Articulate Rise fully exports in TinCan/xAPI mode, do the above conditions for Rise still exist? Or is uncanny owl fully compliant with Rise now?

      Tin Canny does support Tin Can/xAPI for Rise now, but there have been some minor issues with how Articulate did it (on their side). Right now we would still lean towards SCORM use; with Tin Canny there’s no real benefit to using Tin Can output instead. We convert the SCORM data to the Tin Can format we need anyway.

    I’m using ispring but i want to use iframe. Im looking to record both ‘experienced’ and ‘passed’. Is there some other way to get around the lightbox/popup issue. Im thinking maybe add a ‘quiz’ to the last slide (just a question ‘i have finished the lesson checkbox’). Then the pass condition could be score rather than viewed slides and so i could use iframe. Would that work?

      I’m afraid it is not, at least not without a fair bit of custom development. You’re unfortunately the first person to request it, so it’s very unlikely that it’s something we’ll add support for.

        Hi Steve,

        Have you found a work around or solution to this issue?

        I experienced this same problem today, although a couple of weeks ago I successfully ran a Rise SCORM 1.2 course within the plugin just fine.

        The work around I have implemented today was to publish to Tin Can, but this doesn’t boast well for completion tracking. Fortunately in my case the course is for demonstration purposes only so it is not a major dilemma at this stage.

          Hi Steve,

          Sorry about the late reply; for any Tin Canny issues we are able to turn things around quickly when you send support tickets.

          Articulate has modified their Rise output a few times recently on us, in some cases major updates that have broken tracking in Tin Canny. Whenever they change their output we unfortunately have to scramble to figure out what they’re doing differently and adjust Tin Canny accordingly. Do try updating to the most recent version of Tin Canny, as we did make a few Rise changes–but some more updates are coming.

    Hello
    It is good to see the authoring systems you are supporting. Are you supporting SCORM in Lectora (e.g. Inspire 17)? Or, if not, do you have plans for doing so? And, if so, do you have a timeline?

    Thanks for any information.

      Hi Aaron, we have tried a few ispring 9 files and they have worked as expected. We haven’t updated the table yet to include official support, but if you do run into any issues with ispring 9 files we will provide support and make sure they’re working.

    Hi,

    We have just had an eLearning course developed for us using Articulate Rise and we are using LearnDash to host it. The course is split into 5 modules but they are all contained within one url link. We would like to track the users progress at each stage throughout the course and we would also like for the user to track/record their progress in their LearnDash dashboard. So say the user gets 50% through the course and decides to do the rest of the course at another time, we would like for the user to be able to pick up where they left off. Would using this tin canny plugin allow us to do that? We would also like for our files to be copy protected to stop unauthorised users accessing the course if they haven’t registered/paid for the course. Would this plugin also allow this?

    Regards

    Chris

      Hi Chris,

      There are a few unknowns here, like what you mean by LearnDash dashboard, so I’ll comment generally on this. To confirm, Tin Canny does NOT update LearnDash elements like the course progress bars or course navigation. If you have 5 modules, it’s highly recommended that you turn those into distinct lessons and/or topics in LearnDash so that you can then use LearnDash tracking. I can confirm though that Tin Canny does support bookmarking/resume functions for Rise, so that will help, but I still recommend you chunk the courses across several LearnDash lessons if you can. And yes, Tin Canny does offer protection for uploaded modules.

      Tin Canny will definitely not work with Adapt. We explicitly check files on upload to determine which authoring tool was used, and if it’s not one of the tools listed above, I’m afraid Tin Canny won’t track it.

        Hi Ryan,

        Thanks for clarifying. That’s a real shame. Tin Canny looks great, but I hope you are able to support more content in future.

        Thanks,
        Ian

      Hi Jessica,

      We’ll be testing Captivate 2019 shortly. I’m afraid we’re not yet sure if everything will work as expected.

      No, they will not work. Sorry about that. We look for specific authoring tool identifiers in the uploaded files, and if we don’t find a string identifying a plugin that we support, Tin Canny will not accept it as a file that can be tracked.
